About Us

Taking its name from a Spotify playlist of crappy EDM, Ear Coffee was started by two Minneapolis college students who have an almost stupid devotion to music. Our goal is to write about anything and everything related to Minnesota music and elevate the artists and bands that we care about. We cover MN artists and Midwest bands with strong connections to the state we call home.

Wes Muilenburg (editor, writer - he/they):
Wes has been a music fan ever since first seeing an Arcade Fire concert on TV. He listens to more music than is healthy and will probably have tinnitus within the decade. In the meantime, he spends his time writing for this blog, which can claim to not be Pitchfork. He likes cats, rats, jazz, and Hot Cheetos. Find him at @purityolympics on Twitter.

Joe Keyport (producer, writer - he/they):
Joe got into music when they found they parent's record collection as a kid. Since then they have gained a passion for the Twin Cities music scene. When Joe isn't producing the Ear Coffee Podcast or writing for the blog, they are a reporter and on-air host for a country radio station in East Central Minnesota. You can find them @joekeyport on Twitter or on-air weekdays between 2:00 and 6:00 p.m on 100.9 WCMP.
